Christmas Boxes


Hello it's No.2 again! Isn't this thing cute?!! We are sending Christmas boxes. I made this teddy bear for my Christmas box. I was very lucky because I finished the day we had to take it in to get sent. This is the website you get the boxes from and more things about the Christmas boxes: www.samaritanspurse.org.nz

This is my box. Teddy bear, tea cup set, notebook, pens, chalk, ladybird skirt and some other things.

This is No.1's box above. No.1 got a good variety of things. I was at Nana and Papa's house staying the night when they did theirs, so I had to catch up on things. No.4 didn't do one but she was very good about it.

No.3 got a doctors kit and cute teddy bear stickers. She was very proud of her box. She got a ladybird skirt to. She chose the things all by herself. What a clever little girl!

Mum made these fabulous skirts. Isn't she the best Mum out!!!!!!!!! There are different age groups no.3 and I chose 2-4 and no.1 chose 7-9. We had fun making these boxes. Thanks to Nana I finished my box on time.

Thanks Manka, you're so sweet! Didn't she do a great job of that teddy? She forgot to write that she wrote a speech for school about the shoe boxes too. She just missed out getting into the finals unfortunately.

You have them in France too then? That's great. Our girls just love making them up. It's one of the yearly highlights for them. Please feel free to link, she'll be thrilled!

We've done several Christmas boxes over the years - it's such a good thing, and it's fun as well putting them together. Yours look terrific.
Thanks for such a lovely comment on my post. xxx
